Holidays in Alicante

Christmas and Reyes are now over.  The weather here is still quite nice (haven’t worn a jacket during the day since ‘Nam).  It’s almost always sunny and no one can complain about that. One could complain, however, about the amounts of studying I need to be doing and the paper writing that needs to be [...]

A new definition of home

This weekend I took a long-needed trip to Madrid, back “home.” Madrid was decorated in its finest holiday clothes: Enormous lighted Christmas trees, streets with strings of fantastic lights in the shapes of cubes, snowflakes, and other random squiggles and swirls, the people bundled in large jackets and warm black scarves, the faces of stores [...]

The Ups and Downs of Life in Barcelona

Life Update #9

I haven't posted anything in such a long time because quite frankly there hasn't been anything too out of the ordinary worthy of posting. However, I feel that it's time to put you all up to date. First, I've been accepted to study at the CEU San Pablo University here in Madrid. But I'm not [...]
